Dutch Flower Braid

It was so funny that just a little over a week ago we started receiving lots of Facebook photo posts of a hairstyle that we have had pinned on our “Try” Pinterest Board for awhile, by fans who wanted us to film a tutorial.

Then fans started emailing and tweeting the photo as well! Overall, we received likely received over 100 requests for this dutch flower braid in under a week!

Dutch Flower Braid Hairstyle

Since my daughters are totally loving pancake braids right now {braids that are flattened by tugging out the elbows of the braids}, it was easy to convince them to film a tutorial. Fans, this one is for you!

The base for this hairstyle, as seen in the original photo floating around, uses our Pancaked Dutch Braid technique. However, I did not pancake the Dutch portion of this braid because my #3 daughter has a little shorter hair and I needed as much length as we could get for the half-pancaked flower braid.
